'People put my name into Google and they think they know me. But they don't.'
Andrés Iniesta was twelve years old when scouts invited him into Barcelona's famous La Masia academy. Shortly after he joined the club, Pep Guardiola remarked of him, 'This lad is going to retire us all.'
Iniesta rapidly became a permanent fixture in the Barça midfield, propelling the club to a raft of trophies, including eight La Liga championships and four Champions League titles. With his country he was won the European Championships twice, and scored the winning goal in the 2010 World Cup Final.
Behind the wonderfully graceful passing and movement, and the accolades and trophies he has garnered, there exists an intelligent and thoughtful man who, until now, has let his beautifully skilful feet do the talking. The Artist:Being Iniesta offers a uniquely insightful and analytical view of the game Iniesta loves so much.
